May Your Nose Always Be Wide

I was looking for the meaning of an ancient Iranian greeting, “May your nose always be wide” and instead of finding the answer to that question I ran across the Iran Solidarity and International Committee against Stoning and then another website that tells us to be glad we don’t have small noses and another website with travel advice for tear gas, pepper spray and tampons if you happen to get arrested in Iran. Probably the closest I got to finding the answer to the ancient greeting about my nose was more Iranian travel advice, “don’t blow it in public.”
